Threats to Yasuo with this build
|Karthus||Man, Karthus is so squishyyyy as hell. Ofcourse he can make tons of damage on you, but remember, his main damage tool is his Q and you can juke it easily with E. Do not fight him to death, he can just press R and get all the glory once lost.|
|Vel'Koz||Can be very easy, juke with E, poke hard and remember the only thing you cannot block is his ultimate.|
Hey, guys. This is my first guide in Mobafire. I hope you like it and rate it, I always like criticism to become a better player.
In season 4 I was Silver II, but that doesn't mean I suck; I just don't play ranked a lot. Now, I´m Gold V (Hurray). :D
Yasuo is been currently one of the most strong champions due to his team fight abilities to turn the tides of a fight with QR and the kill potential- and also the glory to make those extreme plays that even surprise ourselves. Believe me, when you master this guy, almost no one can stop you.
Well then, Lets begin!
Pros / Cons
+Not dependent from mana
+High mobility with E
+Can block skill shots with W
+One of the strongest passives in the game
+You can outplay your enemies
+Project Yasuo is damn cool, baby!
-You rely a lot in units to escape effectively
-Does not scale Magic Resist
-Hard to master
Alright lets start the real discussion here. Why the hell am I maxing E over Q?
Well the answer is this:
Maxing Steel Tempest first will give you:+20 damage each rank
-Nothing more at all…
Maxing Sweeping Blade first will give you:
+20 damage each rank
+Reduces the cooldown to dash for a enemy target 1 second each rank
+Reduces the cast cooldown 0.1 seconds each rank
Resuming: Maxing Steel Tempest will only give you +100 damage at max rank
Maxing Sweeping Blade will make you able to escape faster from ganks, juke a lot more and actually do more damage with the 2 stacks(remember it makes more 50% damage after using 2 sweeping blades in a short time), also you can trade and get out easier.
So who wins the fight?
Passing through walls
No I'm not kidding. Yasuo can pass walls-outside and inside the monster camps. Here, see this video. This dash can help get kills/escape.
Well, now about items.
You want to rush for the Avarice Blade.In my opinion, if you do want to get stronger earlier, you need to get as much gold as possible.
Then rush for the Statikk Shiv-this is when you start feeling more powerful and be able to win fights that would be hard.
Then get your Blade of the Ruined King for more life steal(useful in fights) and the increase of your AS which will make your Steel Tempest get the lowest cool down its can have( which is 1.33 seconds, so you can spam a tornado every 4 seconds, which is pretty cool and useful).
Next, get the Infinity Edge. You will get really strong with this item; sometimes you might wanna build this first before BorK if you feel you're going to win very easily the match.
Next build your Guardian Angel. Now, why don't I build it last? Well, about your 4th, 5th item, the team fights will be real, and you must be dealing a lot of damage if you want to win the team fight. The Guardian Angelwill save you if they focus you, which will give your team a lot of time to focus the weakest on the enemy team and let you back up for sometime before you go in again.
Now for the last item, you can either choose another defensive item OR an offensive item.
Some people prefer Last Whisper, and I personally don't like it in Yasuo. Yes, it gives a nice Armor Penetration, but your Last Breath already does that, you just gotta use it as earlier as possible in team fights to make it useful. So, I have 2 choices: the The Bloodthirsterand the Maw of Malmortius.
The Bloodthirster- pick this if you wanna survive more in team fights
Maw of Malmortius-pick this if the enemy team has loads of AP that might f*ck you up a little bit.
I will be uploading this guide, Im still trying to understand better who to make these guides.
Hope this guide helped you and please rate it and comment any error you might have found, mistake are easily made.
Best of the luck in the Fields of Justice! =D
